Amy Grant released her first new album in six years last week (3/30). Somewhere Down the Road, out on EMI/Sparrow, reached No. 1 on the iTunes Christian & Gospel iTunes chart; SoundScan numbers will be out this week. Her first radio single since 2003, “Better Than A Hallelujah,” is already climbing the charts and being well-received at radio.
The 12-track set includes six new songs, two previously unreleased tracks from Grant’s musical vault, a newly recorded version of “Arms of Love,” and three songs from her catalog. Among the new songs are a duet with her 17-year-old daughter Sarah Chapman. Her husband Vince Gill has producer credits.
Grant has been making the promotional rounds, with stops over the weekend at the CBS Early Show and Fox & Friends. Later this week, she is set for interviews with Nightline, Guideposts.com, Premiere Radio Networks, and SELF Magazine. She currently graces the cover of CCM magazine’s April digital issue.
Grant’s career spans over 25 years, more than 30 million in album sales, and six GRAMMY® Awards.
